September Events for Women in and Around Boston

We looked at dozens of events happening in and around Boston next month, and we think these look really interesting!

Women’s Self-Love Series – 4 parts starting September 7, 6:00-7:15pm at Pretty Moon Mercantile and Tea Bar, 11 Park Street, West Roxbury – Self-love is not selfish! We can learn more about taking good care of ourselves at these sessions, where we can join for one, two, three or all four….

  • September 7: Awareness & Shifting your Paradigm
  • September 18: Getting to Know your Best Self
  • September 25: Cultivating Self-Love
  • October 2: Replacing Fear with Love

Each session will consist of 25 minutes of teaching, 25 minutes of targeted activities, and 25 minutes of guided, relaxing meditation. The goal is to make the sessions informative, as well as to give us a place to relax and unwind (it’s a beautiful space!). Registration is $33 for each session, or $120 for all 4. Space is limited to the first 12 people who register. Learn more here

Strong Women in Renaissance Italy, September 9–January 7, 2024, at the Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston: When you think about Renaissance Italy, do the names Sofonisba Anguissola, Isabella d’Este, or Lavinia Fontana ring a bell? These women, and many others whose names we may never know – artists, writers, patrons, entrepreneurs, healers, nuns, teachers, and more – influenced their time much more than history has generally recognized (what a shock). Through more than 100 works from the 14th to the early 17th century, this exhibition explores the lives and experiences of women in Renaissance Italy and offers new perspectives on female creativity, power, and agency. Museum admission is $27 per person, free for members. Learn more here

Vibrational Healing Meditation with Tibetan Singing Bowls, September 11, 6:30pm-7:30pm, at Healing with Spirit, 185 Lincoln Street, Hingham: Tibetan Singing Bowls have been used by Tibetan monks for centuries for healing and meditation. The bowls create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul. They can stimulate a profound relaxation response that bypasses the brain and targets the cellular tissues directly inviting powerful positive quantum shifts into your body, mind, spirit and life. Registration is $25 per person. Learn more here

Boston Women’s Market at Riverfest, September 16, 11:00am-4:00pm, Assembly Row, 355 Artisan Way, Somerville – Enjoy a wonderful day of shopping and activities at this free outdoor event. The Market features more than 30 women small business owners, from candle and jewelry makers to painters, from all over New England. Admission is free. There will be free performances by local bands, too. Learn more at Assemblyrow.com

History to Modernity: Contemporary Artists Using Traditional Techniques, September 21, 7:00-8:30pm, at the Lexington Historical Society, 13 Depot Square, Lexington: Historic furnishings created with artisanal techniques help us appreciate the history of women’s labor. Learning about these objects gives us a window into the values and aesthetic ideas of the time. Today’s artists are inspired by historic motifs and pay homage to our past by using traditional methods and visual references while telling stories of today. In this fascinating interactive presentation, artist Merill Comeau will showcase a variety of contemporary artists’ works and share her own work, too. Tickets are $10-$15. Learn more here

Acupuncture for Trauma, September 27, 7:00pm-8:00pm, JPH at Ferry Hill, 76 Ferry Hill Road, Marshfield:  Join renowned acupuncturist Tybee Marruzzi for a workshop for women who have experienced trauma. Trauma comes in many forms, and having a supportive and safe community to help you on your healing journey is so important. Acupuncture can help you to become more grounded and relieve stress and anxiety by harmonizing out of balance emotions. You will sit in a comfortable chair as Tybee strategically places acupuncture needles to specific pressure points, while soothing music plays in the background. Registration is free. Learn more here

We’ll back soon with events for October! XO The Team

Such diverse options! That MFA exhibit sounds great… The Stolen Lady by Laura Morelli might be a good fiction choice to accompany a visit to the exhibition.
